In the current edition of the Kanzleimonitor, the winner in data protection law is Dr. Stefan Drewes. The founder of Drewes Privacy Group moved up another spot and is now in the top position of leading privacy lawyers. At the same time, DPL Drewes Privacy Law Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft mbH also climbed further. With 20 recommendations, the Bonn-based data protection experts occupy fourth place in the ranking of leading data protection law firms. DPL Drewes Privacy Law is also one of the top 100 commercial law firms in Germany. The Kanzleimonitor editorial team states, “Anyone who is recommended has repeatedly demonstrated that clients and their legal challenges are at the center of his or her thinking and actions. And shown that he or she has very special expertise in a particular market, in a particular area of law.”

Innovative legal advice and many years of expertise

“The result in the new law firm monitor is both an award and an incentive for us. We are very pleased that our innovative legal advice, our many years of expertise and our professional work are valued. For us, the client always comes first. Our clear goal is to ensure that our clients do not perceive data protection as a burden, but rather as an integral part of their daily work. That’s why we take a very close look at the individual problems of each company and use this analysis as the basis for developing customized data protection solutions,” says Dr. Stefan Drewes, who is also one of the top 50 business lawyers in Germany according to this evaluation.

Successful debut for Sebastian Wilfling

His colleague Sebastian Wilfling can also rejoice. His successful work was recognized and rewarded with four recommendations. A great success for Sebastian Wilfling, who has been part of Dr. Stefan Drewes’ team since 2018 and primarily advises companies on the promotional use of data.

Comprehensive advice from highly specialized lawyers

The Bonn-based experts of the Drewes Privacy Group specialize in advising larger corporate groups and internationally active corporations on the internal implementation of data protection regulations, including several DAX40 companies. Finally, technical developments based on the processing of personal data are becoming increasingly important. At the same time, data protection law is becoming increasingly complex. It is precisely in this area of conflict that the attorneys at DPL Drewes Law provide their comprehensive advice. The team of highly specialized data protection law attorneys can demonstrate, through its many years of expertise, how companies can meet the challenges of the GDPR without neglecting the economic implications of data processing for operational activities.

This is the law firm monitor

The Law Firm Monitor of the German Institute for Legal Departments and In-house Counsel (diruj) provides a comprehensive list of lawyers and law firms as a selection criterion for the engagement of commercial law firms by in-house counsel of all industries and company sizes. Syndici from almost 900 companies in Germany were surveyed as part of the annual survey. Every year since 2013, the study has listed the law firms and their lawyers recommended by in-house counsel. They are published in the annual book “ – Recommendation is the best reference”.
